This Day in History

1956 - In Ecuador, Plymouth Brethren missionaries Jim Elliot, Nate
Saint, Roger Youderian, Ed McCully and Pete Fleming were
killed by the Auca Indians, while attempting to evangelize
their tribe. Elliot's widow Elisabeth later published the
story of their work and martyrdom in her book "Through Gates
of Splendor" (1963).
